Georgia Demands Rivian Secure, Maintain Its Site for Planned EV Factory

Monday, April 22nd, 2024

Electric vehicle maker Rivian said it is working to secure and maintain the site of its planned Georgia factory, as well as preparing the land for vertical construction as soon as it can move forward with the $5 billion project.

Letters exchanged by Rivian and lawyers for the state of Georgia and a local joint development authority show the state putting pressure on the California-based EV maker to divulge how it will comply with terms of its land lease and incentive agreement amid the stoppage. These issues include site security, stabilizing graded land with vegetation and stormwater management.
